No, Trulia and Zillow are not accurate and often have omission when pulling from other databases. Always check via MLS through an agent you trust.

Does anyone have a ballpark figure as to how much people typically offer to compensate the association for roof rights? How is it determined?

Parking is a premium in the back bay. With the limited street frontage deeded spots became high desirable. It's not uncommon to see deeded parking priced 150K plus! Beacon Hill has the same supply and demand situation and Dorchester would have the highest availability out of your three mentioned. If you're considering buying I would park in the desired locations at different times and days during the week and see how available parking is.
I hope this helps!

These are some great opportunities when they become available. Finding an empty shell you can renovate yourself at a discounted price is a great opportunity and they are becoming less and less. Great neighborhood and will always be in demand. Find yourself a reliable agent and happy house hunting! ... more

Depends on what you place value upon. You have everything from great restaurants, bars and shops at your finger tips. However you will pay for this premium, in my opinion it's worth it! See it for yourself! ... more

Very likely, parking is at a premium in the Back Bay. Deeded spots can range from 25k to 200k.

Enjoy the Back Bay Hina!

I've been in the area constantly day time and night time and the noise level is very low. I would take a test run yourself to see if the noise level is to your satisfaction. Hope this helps:) ... more

Hi Sanja,

Great observation!

Yes, they are a bit on the higher side. You should definitely consider the amount of commercial businesses in a community as this will help your overall tax burden. Both commercial businesses and residents contribute to a towns revenues levied by property taxes. When one is lacking, the other must make up the difference. For example, the taxes in Natick are substantially lower relative to Sherborn (just south of Natick), because Sherborn has very little in terms of retail/office space. Residential property owners in Sherborn must carry to burden in property taxes in this situation.

Hope this information helps.

Angela Guo answered:
In most cases if your son has given a deposit and turned in an application and were accepted but then voluntarily chose to back out there may be an issue. Typically the deposit is only refundable if the Landlord chooses to reject the tenant. The realtor should have explained this to your son. Ask to speak to the agent and see if there is anything that can be done. If you find a suitable replacement you may be able to get your money back.

Good Luck,

Hi Maria, they are sort of crazy.... The market in the BB lacks inventory which is inflating the prices. Sellers know this and are jacking the prices up. This will not last for ever so be patient if you can. Good luck !

02116 is more desirable to most buyers looking to make the BB their home but 02115 will give you a better yield if you are looking for a investment property.
